​At AgXtra, we believe young people are critical to the future of the industry.

Employment opportunities for Undergraduates

AgXtra runs a program designed to provide tertiary students studying Agricultural Science with exposure to the industry and an opportunity to undertake applied work in-the-field.  Since 2010, the business has provided students with regular opportunities to participate in field activities, such as data collection, trial seeding and harvest, fruit picking and soil/tissue sample collection. Conducted in a team environment and under the supervision of experienced staff, our participants have enjoyed the opportuntiy to learn aspects of applied field research and agronomy. The opportunity can lead to ongoing, full time employment following graduation, with almost half of our current full time staff being identified through this work experience model.

Research Officer Development Program

In 2016 AgXtra introduced its Career Development Program with the aim of providing a clear pathway for graduates joining our team.  In 2021, our objective remains the same; harness the passion and drive of graduates, and enhance this with field experience, mentoring from senior staff and skill development through an identified series of training modules.
